no plumber, it is apples to apples, you might find this hard to believe but there is a large business suppling aftermarket, NOS and REPRODUCTION parts for vintage airstream trailers. even basic items such as windows for those trailers from the mid 70's and earlier are no longer available from the factory.
I disagree, it is not an apples to apples comparison. You mention aftermarket and people
. Okay so far. But, lumping Airstream
people in with Old Harley
people changes the type
of people comparison
(on a whole, although you like old Harleys, 50%
of your Airstream people maybe wouldn't
). So, at that juncture it's not
apples to apples any more, imo.
And, if you believe that much of it...then add a bigger lug on our side of the comparison, and weigh the fact that we probably
get burned on more repop parts and assemblies than they do. We're talking motors, frames, wheels, shafts and in-line bore and hone, not trailers (albeit, good trailers). Please don't tell me V-Twin makes Airstream stuff too.
